Audrey sleeps in the spare room. Mavis and Rita call in the Police over The Kabin break-in, Rita is puzzled as the alarm had been turned off. Rita tells the Police she's certain that Alan did it. Alan is taken in for questioning. Jenny can't believe that Rita set the police on Alan. Alf tells Audrey she can have the dockland flat even though it will mean a bigger mortgage. She tells him that she'll settle for a semi-detached and they are reconciled. Alan maintains he didn't break into The Kabin. Curly feels he can't ask Kimberley for a date as he's her boss. Jim McDonald is pleased when Audrey tells him that he can have No.11. Alan spends the night in the cells. Jenny accuses Rita of wanting Alan to be guilty.
